LJ::INITIAL_FRIENDS

This patch allows you to specify the initial friends of new users. It also updates the ljconfig in the documentation to tell you how to use it.

http://goathack.livejournal.org:8012/patches/2002-01-06-initialfriends.patch

To see it in action, create an account on that goathack, or observe the friends list of user "testc". The relevant line in ljconfig.pl:
@INITIAL_FRIENDS = qw(news evan);

(For this LiveJournal installation, I recommend at least: qw(news lj_maintenance).)



Some of the discussion about mandatory friends raised some good issues.
My question to you: how to we, as the people who run the site, address everyone at once?
For example, the site will need to go down for a few hours to do the conversion to clustering, and we'd prefer to warn everyone in advance.
